] >> welcome back. it's been a rough couple months for republicans. they first lost the election -- i guess you can keep the music going. why not? now they are losing a deal on the fiscal cliff so there's no surprise they are losing hope for the future a new washington news poll says 70% of the gop is fearful about what lies ahead in 2013. all right. so let's take a look at this. 72% of republicans say they are very fearful wishes is up by double digits in what they were under president george w. bush and much higher, double digits up from 53% i guess when president obama took office. so, greg, are republicans just more grounded in reason so they are seeing the future as a real nail-biter because they are more focused, they get it more than liberals? >> conservatives in the republican party are like vampire killers. the liberals are generally hate the vampire killers because they are the bloodsuckers. so obviously the republicans are terrified the government is expanding and they are pessimistic about it where the liberals are hopeful because the vampires have the keys to the blood bank. >> did

because of obama's re-election. the "new york times" made the front page with "clout diminished, tea party turns to narrower issues." and "the washington post" reports tea party stays on the sidelines as obamas, republicans in congress tackle fiscal cliff. the most visible former elected official in the tea party and, of course, chairman of freedom works tried to oust several freedom works officials this fall. in fact, according to the post, army thieves control momentarily of the group. and he brought a gun carrying aide to remove rivals within the organization. but within a week, army was out. freedom works arranged an $8 million pay page for him. $8 million. that is more than the organization's entire annual budget in some years. over in the house, several tea party allies were recently stripped of their committee assignments by speaker boehner. so there are some problems there at the top. an influential conservative is lashing out. >> the tea party is going of to look at itself. it's been so helpful to the republican party in the past. it saved i by not going third party in 2010, helpi

. i do not think there is anyone in america who wanted to be elected more than mitt romney, other than, president obama. dennis: he was too much of a nice guy. he should have been beating the daylights out of the bad record of the president. he never really got been enough. >> i do not think he focused enough on what the president did wrong and what he would do differently. there was a lack of passion. dagen: in terms of who gets bruised now, do you think politicians get the looming tax increases and spending cuts before the end of the year and who gets paid out more? >> increasingly, i think we will go over the so-called fiscal cliff. short-term will hurt the republicans, undeniably. long-term, it will hurt the democrats and president obama. dennis: i thought all along that the republicans would look horrible. now, i'm wondering if it is switching the other way. a family earning only $20,000 a year will see that their tax refund gets cut in half if we go off the cliff. >> i think you are right. especially since we have not had the follow-through, dennis. what is the reason for all of

get a bill passed with that splits his republican caucus and puts in danger his re-election as speaker on january 3rd. kelly: that is a lot of talk going around in circles in washington right now. you're very optimistic something can be done but on the other hand there are several economist, juan, that predict indeed we'll go over the fiscal cliff and the inaction of congress has the potential of plunging the united states into another recession. that said, they can't afford to becoming a reality. >> so far they have been very fortunate that the markets have not reacted with panic. you have not seen any plunge on wall street and the like but once you go over the cliff, especially if it is not just a matter of a day or two to allow for a house vote, but if it is really the case that politicians here in washington are so dysfunctional, kelly, they can not get the people's business done, i think then you will see a market reaction that, as you describe it, could plunge the country back into recession and it is not just the united states. remember, we're the world leader in terms of so muc
